We sup­port bag checks? Please.

The Washington Post Sunday - - SUNDAY OPINION -

Metro is disin­gen­u­ous to sug­gest that the fact that “no cus­tomers to date have re­fused to have their bag searched,” as Capt. Kevin Gad­dis of the Tran­sit Po­lice put it, should be con­strued as “sup­port­ive” pub­lic opin­ion [“Metro bag searches crit­i­cized by pub­lic,” Metro, Jan. 4]. Get real! Just be­cause we have to abide by this doesn’t mean we all mer­rily sup­port ei­ther the “guilty un­til proven in­no­cent” doc­trine or the ac­tual train-missing de­lay. Don’t pa­tron­ize me, Metro. I yield to your “se­cu­rity theater” be­cause I want to get to work, pe­riod.
